Google recently introduced authorship support for there search: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=1229920
This requires linking to a authors page which is again linked from a Google Profile. Also the Profile needs to be link from a Google Profile.
Unfortunately WordPress adds the rel="author" flag in its postinfo class which breaks the link, e.g.
<div class="postinfo">by Lars Vogel / July 12th, 2011</div>
Could you change this or tell me how to change it?
Best regards, Lars
